    Miami Int’l Airport Opens Multi-Sensory Room For Children With Autism

    Airports can be very overwhelming experiences for those on the spectrum. Multi-sensory rooms like this can help ease tension and reduce stimulation for those with Autism. Great for adults and kids.

    More airports need to do this. It makes traveling much easier for families traveling with Autism.

    Thank you for the amazing information.  Have you heard of any other airports doing this, or is Miami a world-first?

    Shannon Airport in Ireland has one (the first in Europe) and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport has one. Myrtle Beach in South Carolina has a quiet room and London Heathrow has a quiet room. Though the quiet rooms are not Autism sensory rooms they do provide some calm for families during their time at the airports.

    Some of the airports also offer programs that allow families with Autism to go through the airport process before their actual trip, like a practice run. This is becoming more common and families should check with their local airports to see if it’s offered.
